The Rank Group is delighted to be joining Jabs Army, a UK nationwide call to arms from The Sun newspaper to support the all-important Covid-19 vaccination roll-out.
Jabs Army calls for volunteers to join the over 50,000 people needed to assist with vaccines in crucial steward roles, committing to only two six-hour shifts per month at their nearest vaccination hub.
As an integral part of many local communities, the team at Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casinos want to do their part to support the process of protecting the UK against Covid-19 and get the nation back on its feet.
Each business is appealing to its workforce of team members across the country, with almost 4,000 at Grosvenor Casinos and over 2,000 at Mecca Bingo, as well as over 500 support staff, to sign up as a volunteer and has offered a number of their venues’ car parks as vaccination sites.
John O’Reilly, chief executive of the Rank Group, said: “Jabs Army is a brilliant collaboration with The Sun and something we’re very proud to be a part of.
With over 6,000 Rank Group staff nationwide, we often find ourselves at the heart of our communities. Our venues and teams offer a familiarity that lend themselves ideally to being used for the vaccine roll-out.”
